My history as a Reader

  • Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

    Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
    This was one of my favorite books when I was really little, I can remember repeating the tittle with my mom in the loft surounded by little books like this.
  • Dr. Seuss

    Dr. Seuss
    As many people in my generation, Dr. Seuss was a huge part of reading as a little kid!
  • Chocolate Island

    Chocolate Island
    This was my appsolute favorite bedtime story ever. I begged my mom to read it every night! She eventually got very tired of it and would only read it when I had a nightmare, so I assosicate this book with comfort.
  • Period: to

    The Period of NO READING

    This was when I began to learn how to read, I really struggled with reading because I would flip, and skip words, and mix up the letters. For a little while we thought I was dyslexic but it turns out I had an issue with my eyes tracking together. This made learning to read really difficult so for this period of time I honestly hated reading because it was so frustrating.
  • Molly Moon

    Molly Moon
    This was the longest book I had ever read at the time, and it was the book that got into reading, after that you couldnt get a book out of my hands!
  • Nancy Drew

    Nancy Drew
    When I was in 5th grade, every week I would check out the maximum amount of books (2) in Nancy Drews. By the end of the year I had read every book in the series that our school library had!
  • The Dark Side of Nowhere

    The Dark Side of Nowhere
    This was the very first sci-fi book I ever read, after this book I was hooked and started broadening my horizons as a reader.
  • Secrets of My Hollywood Life

    Secrets of My Hollywood Life
    This was a very girl book, but that was pretty much all I thought was "okay" to read. I didn't like trying new books, or new genres very much.
  • The Uglies Series

    The Uglies Series
    I could not put these books down! I remember staying up late to read these books because I just had to know what happened next!
  • Enders Game

    Enders Game
    I just adored this book! But, it was books like these other girls didn't care for, so I was always the only girl in my reading group!
  • Surviving Antarctica

    Surviving Antarctica
    This was a book that I could litterally not put down, and another one I read with an all guy lit. circle! This book got me in trouble many nights because I stayed up late reading it!
  • Little Women

    Little Women
    My english teacher was amazing in 7th grade, she did a very one-on-one way of teaching, and in the last quarter she had sort of run out of things to throw at me so she asked me to read a classic. I really struggled getting into Little Women, and after an all weekend long reading marathon I was able to finish. But, I didnt like the ending, and I didnt ever really get into it.
  • The Gallagher Girl Series

    The Gallagher Girl Series
    This was one of the few "girly" books that I actually liked after I got into sci-fi books
  • The Host

    The Host
    This book was really intimidating to me because it was the heaviest, and thickest book I had ever read. I remember lugging it around school and people would asked me why I was carrying a dictionary!
  • The Hunger Games

    The Hunger Games
    I really loved these book, I remember starting to read the series on a snow day, and finishin the whole trilogy before we came back to school a few days later.
  • The Help

    The Help
    I really liked this book, it was a one of the few books I read last year because I was so busy!
  • To Kill a Mockingbird

    To Kill a Mockingbird
    I loved this book! It was an assigned reading, I wound up finishing it way before I was supposed to, but I have always struggled with not reading ahead!
  • Mao's Last Dancer

    Mao's Last Dancer
    I had an assignment freshman year to read and present a non-fiction book. I decided to look through the best sellers on amazon in the non-fiction section, and found this book. I was hesitant at first, but I fell in love with this book. I got to learn about part of China's history, and a little about dance!
  • Little Woman

    Little Woman
    I decided to try reading Little Woman again in freshman year when we had a classic reading assignment. This time it was completely different from when I read it in 7th grade! I fell in love with it! I also discovered there was a Little Woman musical made, and that really helped me to conect with the characters!
  • Radiance

    This was one of the few books that my mom told me to read, that I actually read! I was surprised how good it was, and wound up finishing it before her!
  • Harry Potter

    Harry Potter
    I had struggled a lot with reading right around the time the Harry Potter series started becoming popular, because they were so big, I was never attempted to read them, until this year. It was so cool because I got the chance to relive something I regretted missing as a little kid.
